I don't like Mondays! Was surprised to learn that very few Americans know this song.

That's a great song, I still have it in my regular rotation of about 2500 songs.
(one tiny SD card makes it so easy)
The group did make several good songs together, but Geldof is still a dick.

Boomtown Rats...

When I was in San Diego back in the late 70's, one of the guys in my squadron had a daughter at Grover Cleveland Elementary school that Miss Spencer shot up. She didn't get hit but several people waiting at the gate where she was standing did get hit. I think the principal and a janitor were killed.

Weird stuff...

I was at the Boomtown rats show in West Hartford about a week after that happened...Bob Geldof had just finished writing that song, and they performed it for the first time at that show.
Still a great tune....

I always forget it's Bob Gelding (lol) that sang that. It sounds a bit Clash'y. Or maybe Kink'y. Same era, obviously.

EDIT

Geldof didn't abscond with Live Aid $, he just foolishly thought the Ethiopian government would help distribute it. They stole it and bought Russian weapons with it.

I have about 9GB of MP3s on my old phone. The new Droid Turbo 2 has 32GB internal memory,
and I just added a 200GB(183GB real) Sandisk MicroSD card for a total of 232GB.

I have both USB and SD slots in my car stereo.
A 16GB card or flash drive holds nearly 100 CD's worth of music.
